Link to Win!

For every 50 VIC card links between now and September 30, 2017, Selwyn will receive one drawing entry to win $500 for the school. But that’s not all we will win! Sir Purr will pay us a visit, bringing Panthers swag for every student! He will be joined by the Harris Teeter Ice Cream Truck filled with frozen treats for all.

Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends, and neighbors…please go online now to link or re-link your Harris Teeter VIC Card to Selwyn Elementary (#1736). There will also be sign up sheets in each classroom at Back To School Night on September 19.

Once linked, your purchase of Harris Teeter brand products will earn money for our school. Thank you for supporting Selwyn Elementary!

Go Panthers!!
